That's all well and good but how do we explain that Jock's eyes were hazel and Wes has blue eyes? Which I guess would put an end to any Wes is Jock theories.

Both actors had blue eyes, where are you getting hazel from? :)

those small South American missionary charity hospitals were decades ahead of their time with their “completely transform a burn victim into someone years younger with much better skin” surgeries and flawless eye transplants

I don't understand why nobody tries to find the original script of "Bar-B-Cued" instead of having those endless discussions about the same subject for years. If Wes Parmalee proved to Ellie that he was Jock in a scene that was cut, it will be in the script !
Another way, but much more complicate, would be to find the story outline of this episode.

Over 15 years, I was able to get 98% of the scripts of "Dynasty" and 55% of the scripts of "The Colbys" + 6 seasonal bibles + dozen of story outlines. I'm sure it's possible to do the same with "Dallas" !

Ohhhhhh....good point.

Plus the height difference.

Steve Forrest was only one inch taller than Jim Davis.

And as I said earlier both Jim & Steve had blue eyes. :)

Nurse Hatton is offering more services now than at the time Swellin was there!! What did you give her in return, did you have anything "precious" to deal with?

I didn't give her anything! A headache probably.

And she wasn't getting ahold of my ring. That's my precious. :)

those online height listings are so unreliable! Jordan Lee’s height is listed somewhere in such inflated form that it’s a wonder he wasn’t moonlighting as a wily veteran backup center for the Dallas Mavericks in between his oil deals.

(ah, here we go: https://wikispro.com/don-starr-wiki-networth-age/ )

Jim Davis appeared to be right around the same height as Bobby, while Ben/Wes/Wyatt/Jock was clearly at least an inch shorter than his hot-tempered, helmet-haired youngest alleged son .

..which makes sense when you think of the spinal compression fractures from the crash and general aging . With experimental height extension surgeries not available in those mysterious South American hospitals until 1986 or 1987, it’s highly plausible that Jock would return a bit shorter.

LOL - his miraculous fifteen-year de-aging was even more incredible than his improved complexion.

It's funny that but when Stephanie Harper got mauled by the crocodile in the mini series of Return To Eden she was in her forties.

After Doctor Dan Marshall performed the plastic surgery on her she looked about fifteen years younger too .
